Deadonmusic launch new website
Blog by Louise Dodgson under Creative & Branding, Live, Media
Deadonmusic are a one-stop Belfast shop for musicians who predominantly work with unsigned artists and have several years experience in getting musicians noticed in the press, online and at their live shows - whether you're looking for a swish new website, merchandise, poster designs or even if you're looking for a gig in Belfast, Andy and Scott can help you out.
They're primarily involved with the alt-folk/country scene, having organised shows for acts such as Basia Bulat and David Ford, but they've also recently set-up the online presence for Belfast's premier redneck-rockers, Lafaro, too, so they're into all sorts. Andy and Scott have established themselves as two of Belfast's most reliable muso's, not only working independently (including running a weekly country club called 'Outlaw' in Belfast's oldest pub, McHugh's) but also helping out with shows for some of Belfast's top festivals such as the Open House, Cathedral Quarter Arts and Belfast Nashville Songwriter's Festivals to name a few.
Deadonmusic have just re-launched their own website, after sprucing it up and giving it a Gok-style makeover. Having just finished his handywork, resident web-urchin, Scott, gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us a bit what it takes for unsigned bands to succeed, "There's a lot of hard work involved - if you're serious about your music and willing to put in the effort with promotion and really up for a dynamic live show then you could go far!".
So if you're a Belfast band and you're wondering how to go about getting your first gig, here's some pointers from Scott as to what Deadonmusic look for when putting a line-up together, "We'll not necessarily look for how many Myspace friends you've got or what your friends are saying about you but we will listen to your tunes, check out any pics and videos you might have and do a bit of Googling, so an online presence is vital when dealing with promoters, the press or just about anyone else these days. We've got a little helpful list of do's and don'ts over on the contact page of our site. If you think you've got what it takes and we think you've got what it takes then let's go!".
Sound good, aye? Dead on.
The next Deadonmusic show features Ben Glover, Thom Southern and The 1930's in McHughs, Friday 18th June 2010.
